Hi Andrew, Andreas and Eric,
Thanks for the replies. I am done for today ;-) (or so)
I learned again that sometimes it is important to know how to search ;-).
Oviously I followed the wrong hints in the first place.
Thanks for the many links and tips.
I am definitely save from now on.
I will give it another couple of installation sessions which should bring me
closer to my destination. ;-)
Thanks anybody for the help.

Thanks for the reply. I have now a better understanding whats
FreeBSD. One question (last one) which I could not find an answer to in the
online manual is :
How would you do a Dual or multi OS boot machine f.e. with Windows
on the first
disk, first slice, first partition and FreeBSD on another partition ?
Would I need a boot floppy or perhaps its not possible at all ?
Dual booting FreeBSD along with other Operating Systems is definitely
possible. And you're right, I couldn't find any reference to how
this can be done in the Handbook either. :)
Basically, it is my understanding that you will want to add a
dedicated FreeBSD partition to your disk, and configure the slices
within that partition as you have learned previously. In terms of how
to boot, while you can use a floppy, there are many boot managers,
that once configured, are more convenient to use than floppies.
I did a quick google, and found a guide that seems to cover this
topic in some depth:
